Most of the aircraft drones produced in Russia do not meet the tactical and technical requirements of the RF Ministry of Defense. This was announced on September 27 by the representative of the department, Colonel Igor Ischuk.
“The Ministry of Defense has developed the appropriate tactical and technical requirements for unmanned aerial vehicles. And most manufacturers, unfortunately, are not able to fulfill them. And the main problem of non-fulfillment is the element base, ”he said at the round table“ Prospects for the development of unmanned vehicle technologies in the Russian Federation ”(quote from TASS ).
He noted that because of this, the department has to go for the simplification and acceptance of UAVs into operation in a pilot mode.
According to the colonel, now the Russian military is most in need of electronic reconnaissance drones. In addition, we need devices with an “acceptable price category” noise-proof navigation receiver, which are easy to use, and equipped with radiation warning devices and “friend or foe” systems.
Earlier, at the end of July, Turkish media wrote that Russian President Vladimir Putin, at a meeting with Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan, expressed a desire to cooperate with the drone manufacturer Bayraktar. The Kremlin confirmed that the topic of military-technical cooperation between Russia and Turkey was discussed and “is constantly on the agenda.”
